UK - A dispute between unions and employers over pension shortfalls has lead to more strike action on the Midland mainline to London on the 28 and 29 February.
An ASLEF statement said: "Some train drivers - the ones nearest to retirement - stand to lose £2,700 (US$5,295) a year from the pensions they expected to receive - and £4,700 from the lump sum to which they expected to be entitled.
"London Midland agrees that this is the case, but says that it is prepared to do no more than share the cost of putting it right - some £1.4m."
The problem arose after former employer, Silverlink, raised salaries but did not align payments to the pension fund to these changes.
Silverlink subsequently relinquished the contract to run the rail service and no longer exists as a company.
London Midland responded: "We have every sympathy with the drivers affected and want to work with ASLEF and the other organisations involved to fund the shortfall in drivers' pensions.
"The issues will only be fully resolved by continuing the ongoing discussions we took over with our franchise in November last year."
The affected parties have been in discussions with the MPs and London Mayor, Ken Livingstone.
A spokesman for ASLEF concluded: "It's becoming a pass the parcel, MPs pass it on as we are dealing with a private company and the company we have now is not the one who made the original mistake. It's like chasing phantoms."
